On Jan 1st 2007 I started the SAL on the Teresa Wentzler castle. I called the dragon Lucky after the luck dragon on the movie The Never Ending Story. [one of my favorites]

I had hoped to have it done but I am soooo close I can feel it. Just a few more days. [bottom left rocks and claw]

I hope this finds you all in the best of times in the NEW YEAR !

"Thank you" for all the lovely comments and the stitching support.

It has been a wonderful year of support from my dear friends and the blogging world of stitching. I have made so many new friends and look forward to making many more.

All the best from Beatrice!

Hi Beatrice!

Wow, you've been a busy lady since I last visited. So many lovely things to look at. Of course Lucky is pride of place at the moment. So close to a finish. You're going to miss him when he's done.

I love seeing each bit of progress on Paradigm too. Pictures from the designer's site of their designs just don't seem to do any of them justice. It's seeing them on stitcher's blogs that really allows us to appreciate them fully.

Your teapot is a little bit of summer sunshine on a very wintery day.

Best wishes for the New Year to you and your family Beatrice!!!

I hope you had a great new year. Your dragon is looking so good, I'm sure it will be finished in no time at all. I hope you have a great 2008, with lots of stitching time.

Hi Beatrice,

I sent you an e-mail today and it came back saying it couldn't be sent but the server would keep trying so I"m going to get in touch with you via your blog as well, in case you don't get my e-mails.

A. Your fabbie is in! So if you want to start MG tomorrow you can!

B. Can you bring your MG chart? Christin and I are debating a symbol and we have the old green charts and we know the white ones are better.

See you tomorrow!

You are close! It looks terrific!
Happy New Year!

Hello Beatrice,

Do you remember your blog about lovely quilt with the Dutch national costumes on it? And that I promised to show you my (old) version? It's on my blog today, I made a picture of it.

Bye! Carolien
